      This is actually the price of many laptops with the exact same specs. My ASUS laptop with an RTX 2060 i got in January cost me $1500. But being smaller than a laptop is what a handheld is meant for. I backed the OXP because my Switch gets more play time than my laptop because its more convenient, but I'm a PC gamer at heart. www.amazon.com/dp/B08R7Z6RYT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_5HVCVCR8QN1GGJGTDGYZ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

      Comparing this to a Switch isn't actually accurate. In terms of raw power and freedom it blows the Switch out of the water. You can play Cyberpunk 2077 on low at 30fps on this, what can you run Cyberpunk at on the Switch? Oh, thats right. Its not strong enough. Its hardware would explode if the game loaded. Even Witcher 3 overheats my Switch.

    As cool as this device is, it seems kind of gimmicky. Too large for easy pocket portability, a smaller screen and with less performance than a similarly priced gaming laptop. Modern smartphones can run emulators no problem and are much more portable. I just don't see this thing taking off.

    • Brandon King
      Brandon King

      Not really. Intel sells the 1165 CPU for $426. So just the processor alone is more expensive than people seem to think the entire device should be. Add in the 16GB RAM and the 1TB SSD, and you're already at about $700 in production costs just for those 3 parts alone.

  • WJCTechyman

    Laptop and desktop processors in handheld PCs like this seems a little excessive when you can buy ARM based units that are more efficient and makes the device reasonably sized like Nintendo's handhelds, iPads, iPhones, etc. I mean, compared to this thing, a literal GameGear cannot possibly compete with the Switch (GameBoy Pocket) Granted, like the older systems mentioned, the specifications of the handheld PC surpass that of the Switch, but by how much? Then there's the problem as with any gaming PC, how much time is wasted getting the game up and running compared to most consoles?

    • Brandon King

      Intel sells the 1165 CPU for $426, and between that, the RAM and the SSD you're already sitting on $700 in production costs. So what do you think the price should be? Also you can find many laptops with the exact same specs for this same ballpark in price. But this is a handheld so has an advantage over a laptop. Granted a dedicated gaming laptop is better, but likewise is even more expensive

    That thing costs almost as much as I paid for a laptop with a 2070 super a little over a year ago..... Also my 10875H laughs at the notion of that quadcore cpu being the fastest cpu around. Doesn't even require a desktop to utterly murder it. Not to mention that 5900HX or 11980HK would murder my cpu.

    • Nauzhror
      Nauzhror

      @Brandon King That's the thing though, it didn't say "fastest ULV CPU" or anything like that. It was marketed as the fastest cpu. Which is ludicrous.

    • Brandon King
      Brandon King

      The h series is larger than the u. It has to use the smallest CPU available because of the battery. So in its class its true. At least for now.

      Discount Nintendo Switch? This can run circles over the Switch's ancient hardware. And you can run Mario, perfectly with the Dolphin emulator, and fairly well with the Yuzu Switch emulator, though thats subject to change as Yuzu develops further. This can literally emulate the PS3 well. Also i wonder how well the Switch can run Halo MCC or the Mass Effect Legendary Edition. This can run those well
